Tuesday, July 13th at 7 pm. The Newburyport Public Library will be hosting Jeffrey Urbin, Education Specialist at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, for a presentation about the Pack Horse Library initiative, a program of FDR’s Work Progress Administration (WPA). Its mission, carried out almost entirely by women, was to deliver and distribute reading materials to the far-off corners of Appalachia during the darkest hours of the Great Depression.
